Testimonial from our Scholarship students

Gypsy Bullen Scholarship photo ResizedImageWzM0NCwzNjdd

"Kia Ora, I am a Massey University Masters student majoring in Human Nutrition and Dietetics, I have always been passionate about nutrition and helping improve the health outcomes of our whānau, our Maori whānau are at higher risk of developing poor health outcomes and I am passionate about making a change and supporting our whānau to lead healthier lifestyles. I am beyond grateful to be taken in on the Waitematā DHB scholarship program, not only did the financial support help, but the opportunity to be taken in on the program and supported throughout my masters degree by the team at Waitematā DHB was amazing. As a new graduate student I feel like the weight of the world has been taken off my shoulders knowing that there are opportunities waiting for me at Waitematā DHB once I graduate and I am so grateful that this scholarship allows me to begin working in a career that I am so passionate about" Gypsy Bullen - 2019 Scholarship Student

"In 2018 I was awarded a Waitematā DHB Health Scholarship. This scholarship has helped to decrease the financial burden, studying caused me and give me the opportunity to work for Waitematā DHB once I have completed my studies. Throughout the scholarship program I have felt supported and welcomed by all staff members and they have provided endless amounts of support! I would highly recommend for all pacific islanders to apply as this is such an awesome program to be in"  - Onyay Tugaga - 2018 Scholarship Student
